Lianne La Havas problem is she’s not in love with a man nearly twice her age—or perhaps that’s not a problem at all actually. The London-born singer-songwriter, who is half-Greek and half-Jamaican, catapulted to fame with her song “Age,” a whimsical song about this age-old dilemma. However, unlike the Shabba Ranks dancehall tune, La Havas croons about falling for a younger heartbreaker instead of a guy her father’s age. Since landing on the cultural radar, she’s been nominated for the BBC’s Sound of 2012, shared studio time with Prince, and opened for her longtime hero Erykah Badu. Now she’s hitting the stage with her loyal guitar for a show at the Bowery Ballroom.
